Gorgui Dieng

I love Gorgui Dieng. He is a very skilled yet still flawed and an awkward player. He’s got a long winding jump shot and he’s not the smoothest of players but he is one of the best kept secrets, even when it comes to the Wolves own fan-base.

Gorgui can knock down a free-throw line jumper with consistency which helps space the floor, and he can block shots defensively.

He will be coveted by another team when he hits restricted free agency in 2017. Dieng will be coming off the bench as a Wolf, but he could be a starter on a decent sixth-seeded playoff team.

Result: Gorgui signs with another team in restricted free agency. Wolves do not match.
